Pretty sure the bar you're trying to think of is the Rock Inn, a place I frequented when I was in H.S. (65 grad) and after. In those days 18 was the legal drinking age, so, we went there when we were 16.
There was also Checkers, in your day, in mine, it was known as the Wharf. Stories abound.
I think it was around '98, Buddy Miles played at Checkers, he had an Uncle here that he spent time with when he was young, so, he returned for another visit.
Pizza places ? hummm .... Gambini's, Breadeaux, Pizza Hut of course, Pete's on the Mall, Gary's out on Main.....I dunno.

Ya that's it! The Rock! Though why does it come back to me now as the Dew Rock Inn??? First time i ever stepped in that place, got some really suspicious looks, as it was definitely off the beaten path, but after several visits the locals in that bar and area really were wonderful folk and had some great times there. Anyway my friend, thanks for bringing back some wonderful memories! The Hot Tuna is going out to you tomorrow morning ... hope it arrives safe and that you enjoy it. Listening to it now for the first time on the big stereo and i gotta say, i'm impressed. Cheers ... T.
